Queen of the Stillborn


Time's leash is too short, probability is too impotent
to allow me to reach across and touch your face,
to learn, and paint, and speak


My hand on yours, on the brush
We trace the intent of the masters, a wonderful truth
heard from the face of the totem


It outlasted a storm, stood beyond its purpose
watched its creators die, bore those long silences
naked for all eternity
